My upcoming book, On the BRINK: Leap into an Extraordinary Life and Never Look Back, examines the unprecedented challenges we are facing today. Somewhere along the way we crossed the line from being flooded by information overload to total saturation. Now we're trapped in a cycle we can't seem to break free from. This is just a symptom of deeper-rooted problems. We're experiencing an epidemic of burnout in our careers, daily life and relationships, and it takes more energy than we have just to keep pace. This book exposes a surprising cause to the increasing dis-ease and discontent people are experiencing today in this rise of the digital age.
A seasoned speaker, I come to the stage with engaging stories, thought-provoking ideas and real, palpable and practical techniques that audiences can experience, easily adopt and put into practice right there and then. I've had the priviledge of captivating corporate and private audiences alike in the United States and Europe. I am always looking to meet, talk with and share enlightening ideas with amazing people in all corners of the globe. Audiences can expect much more than entertaining, well-rehearsed talks from a stage, as I invite audiences to have powerful, transformational experiences from which they leave feeling empowered to affect real change.
In my coaching programs, I draw on everything I've learned from decades in both the field of human potential and my own business and entrepreneurial pursuits. Having successfully navigated the corporate world as head of online media relations for Intel Corporation - the $56 billion per year Fortune 100 company that literally sets the blistering pace for the high-tech industry - I know first-hand the challenges of sucessfully maneuvering that lifestyle as well as the challenges of opting to step out of it into the unknown.One thing I want you to know right now above all else: YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

When I was a kid, I had a keen sense of the incredible power of the human mind. I even told my dad, literally at the age of 7 or 8, that I loved my mind… but it also scared me. I loved its creative power – the imagination especially – but it felt just […]

Training the Mind to Step above the Fray as the Observer Many people, if not most, are challenged when it comes to the idea of slowing, quieting or stopping their thoughts altogether, especially today when we’re all so inundated with constant flood of distraction. I learned a whole lot about the inner workings of the […]

Personal coaching, I believe – specifically personal, development or life coaching – is the way of the future. The reason for this is clear – coaching enables us to work intimately with people we sense a natural and deeper affinity with. We can learn much more effectively working with coaches we find ourselves intuitively attracted […]
